Postby Jeff Carlisle » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:09 am

Meeting is May 17th 2011 at 6:30 p.m. at the Denny's by the Sears Mall for a bite to eat, then to follow a cruise to Baskin Robbins on Old Seward and Dimond.

We are only a month out from the big show! 6th annual VW Family Reunion @ the Dimond Center!

More to come!

Awesome get together tonight finalizing most all things for the 6th Annual VW family reunion.

Four VWS showed up and rolled over to Baskin and Robbins! Image

We were happy to have Ted, Pat, John, Greg 'Doc' and wife Kathy, as well as happy to welcome Nick who this last fall picked up a 70's Ghia.

Hey guys! It was nice to meet everyone last night.

I was looking through the classifieds and it turns out Eddie posted a heads-up for the Craigslist posting where I found my new Ghia last fall. Despite making a career out of computer stuff, I don't get out much (in the online social media sense) so a friend of mine forwarded that CL post to me "in case I was interested."

I was interested! In my excitement, I passed it along to my GF, using what can only be described as excessive use of exclamation points, then went straight to the bank to get pre-approved for a signature loan. I made an appointment with the owner, and she (Julie) warned me that someone else was coming to see it the next day, so I made an appointment for the next evening. I got a call from her an hour before our appointment saying the car had been sold. Oh, the agony...

As it turns out, my incredibly resourceful sig. other took donations from my friends and both our families and bought it out from underneath me. On my birthday, a few days later, they all took me out to dinner, somehow having snuck the Ghia into my garage while I was distracted elsewhere, and unveiled the car with sticky notes all over the place showing who bought what part.

Best birthday ever. ;-)

Dang, I meant to make this meeting Tuesday morning and just now remembered. Guess I'm so used to not being able to that I've developed a block.

Cool Birthday story. I always get a meatloaf.
